Creating a Story for 3DEXPERIENCE Dashboards

Article by Joe Medeiros, CSWE updated August 4, 2020


Stories facilitate navigating a 3DEXPERIENCE Dashboard by providing a description for a dashboard, tab and widget. You can add a story to provide the users of your dashboard a quick overview of its content. The Dashboard creator/editor decides where to add a Story and the contents of the Story.

Stories can be added by clicking on the “+” sign of the Top Bar and selecting Story from the menu.
